You Gotta Have Faith, Faith, Faith (channeling WHAM)

I have a very dear friend who is devoutly spiritual and I wanted to make her a religious themed gift card set for her birthday next week that she can use for any occasion.  Here's a few of my creations.
















Hope she likes them.  

I don't usually share my political or religious views on this blog, but figure since I am focusing on faith today, I would share a bit about my thoughts on the subject.  Do I believe in God.  Yes.   Do I pray and give thanks for the amazing gift of life - every single day.  Do I go to church.  No.  I've been a member and baptised in several different religions over the years ... Lutheran, Catholic, Mormon, Born Again Christian, just to name a few.  And what I've found is that there is no one organized religion that I can embrace, but rather there are several elements from each that I encompass in my day to day life.    Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend and staying "cool".  We're having a VERY hot and humid summer here in the heartland.

Lillian, these are sooooooo beautiful!! If I were the friend you made them for, I'd have a hard time letting any of them go!! :) I can really appreciate your post -- I'm someone who believes that the building doesn't make the church, so keep singing your praises and creating your wonderful cards -- You are a beautiful person...

I've long been a follower of your blog (since the OWH hop in March, I believe), but I'm so glad you left a link for me on the Love To Crop! facebook page so I could come and visit you tonight!! :)
